Has your booth amassed a mountain of those plastic coupling cores that come with FilmGuard and Film-Tech media pads? A lot of requests for some form of recycling program for those cores have been coming in over the months, so we're going to do a 9 month test run starting right now. Pack 'em up, save the planet and get free stuff in return!  -

Click the "FilmGuard" button in the nagivational menu on the left side of your screen and follow the link for more info. Be sure to check the link from time to time, as minor policy changes and other offers may sneak up as this is fine tuned.  -

Of if you want to take a shortcut, you can just click here.

We've been doing this for 3 years now, and although it has gotten a good response, I have a feeling many people are not aware of the program so I'm bumping it to the top of the forum.

BTW, congrats to AMC, as they have clearly been the biggest participants in recycling these cores. [thumbsup]

Yes. Yes it has. We've got about a full box and a half.
Not yet enough to send in though [Frown]

It's a great thing though that you're doing this.

1) Clean them out well, relabel them, use to contain cleaner that need spraying.

2) Recycle them
2a) Depending on where you live, you might have government regulations on recycling something with these chemicals inside.

I'm not sure how Chris's first suggestion would work with OSHA regulations. At the very least you would not be able to use hand made labels. Better just to buy new bottles or order pre-labeled cleaning bottles from your suppliers. Its safer, adheres to government regulations, and isn't that expensive.

I agree with Dustin. Most companies have policies that prohibit mixing chemicals or using a container that perviously housed one chemical for a different one, no matter how thoroughly the container has been cleaned. Spray bottles like that aren't terribly expenive.

Recycling seems your best option.

They are sold in quart bottles because if we sold it in bulk then we would have a dual inventory to deal with. Furthermore many of the typical spray bottles like you might buy at a Home Depot don't have a sprayer or bottle made out of a material that is suitable for the chemical composition. Trust me when I say it doesn't add any cost to the final product anyway.

Re dual inventory: SR, A, and CDS versions, please! [Cool]
